Unai Emery to Arsenal: Reason Mikel Arteta was NOT named manager revealed

Share

Mikel Arteta will not be the next Arsenal manager after the Gunners' board chose to appoint a more experienced boss, according to reports in Spain.

Wenger, 68, left the Gunners at the end of season after 22 years in charge, during which he won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups, including two Doubles.

The veteran French coach said last week that he felt Arteta, now assistant manager under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, "has all the qualities to do the job". He was replaced by former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel, who had also been linked with the Arsenal job.

Emery flew into London on Monday for negotiations before a unanimous choice of the Spaniard replacing Arsene Wenger at the Emirates.

Emery previously enjoyed great success on the European stage at Sevilla, where he won three Europa League titles in three full seasons at the Sanchez Pizjuan.

Neymar was bought for 222 million euros ($268 million) from Barcelona in the close season to help increase PSG's chances of winning Europe's elite club competition, and Emery was widely held responsible for their disappointing Champions League campaign.

Wenger, however, will not have any say in the appointment of the new man, and was pictured waving goodbye as he left the club's Hertfordshire training complex on Monday.

Other candidates included Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri and former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti, as well as former Arsenal players Arteta, Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira.

Arteta, who played 150 games for Arsenal between 2011 and 2016, even had Wenger's blessing.

Arsenal have overseen a thorough search for their new manager, with chief executive Ivan Gazidis leading the process. Where's Unai Emery come from?
